Our first stop was at the Wahkeena Falls.
Stop number two was the one I was looking forward to the most.

Rounding out our Waterfall Trifecta Tour was Horsetail Falls. While this fall was very beautiful, I only saw it from the warm, dry car. It had been drizzling off and on all morning and by then E was sleeping so the brave men went out and took the pictures for us.
Our second half of the day was spent exploring Cathedral Park and St. Johns Bridge. I love bridges and this one is a real beauty.

Cathedral Park (named after the Gothic Cathedral-like appearance of the bridge towers) was a great place to get K out of the car to burn some energy.
I have to admit to doctoring up the photo above. It's such a pretty sight, with the arches of the bridge and the tree in the middle that the white concrete patches in the original photo were just too distracting so I used Photoshop to do my own "repairs".
That covers our time in OR for the most part. I'll leave you tonight with a few stragglers that didn't get their own posts but deserve to be mentioned.
|This is a scenic overlook right by our friends house. I love how the Columbia|
disappears into the mist. Also, it would be awesome to own that house down there.
|Beautiful Mt. Hood|

Stay tuned for the rest of our trip in Washington and Victoria, B.C.
